PC induction-cooled case mod
I really want one of these case mods! I’m really not interested in over-clocking gadgets; my PC’s fast enough, but it looks too plain. I’d be very happy to have one of these boy racer mods though.
The gizmo on the side is a turbocharger from a 1990’s Mitsubishi Eclipse. I guess the idea is that using a turbo stream of air to cool your PC, you can run it a little faster, but even the people who designed the mod are a little sceptical about that.
The turbo runs at 3500 rpm which is almost like it’s on idle when you think that a typical turbocharger will peak at around 100,000 rpm or higher. However, this one’s not water-cooled, because as the designers acknowledge, the project’s “…already ridiculous enough!”
I’m not sure about the noise that it might make, but I think I could stand it.
There’s a cool gallery with photos of how the case mod project was constructed here. Found via TechEblog.
